Man's Effective and Idiotic Loophole Enrages Burger Guy

In this world of strict corporate policy, we sometimes find ourselves in absurd situations asking "the pickles are right there, the onions are right there, why can't I have one with pickles and onions" only to be met with a stone-faced representative saying "I'm sorry but that's impossible and I will be fired If I do that." Of course no one wants to be a Karen customer,  so we are left to use our brains to develop really stupid loopholes.

man combines burgers against wishes of burger guy, enraging him

Rude Customer Doesn't Realize He's Returning Collector's Item

Even after having the distinction explained to him, this dude just wasn't having it. It's one of those rare times when "the customer's always right" doesn't exactly benefit the customer. But he got what he wanted, so that's fine. It's like the time this customer ordered exactly a pound of wings and got less wings.

Boss Uses Eye Gag to Remove Problem Customers

Gotta love a manager with a sense of humor to match their intolerance for idiotic customers. Employees have dealt with some ridiculous customer demands, having to debase themselves for the flawed and almighty " customer is always right" mentality. Here's another one where a customer weaponized a tip jar to defeat a Karen.

Karen Thinks Employee Is Line Cutter, Gets Humbled

The garden variety Karen is known for obstructive outbursts, and this one was no different when she convinced herself that an employee was trying to ruin her day. Even given an explanation, she wasn't ready to back down. For another Karen with nonsensical demands, here's a Karen who demanded a delivery driver check her groceries out.

Male Karen Doesn't Believe Tattoo Shop Owner, Gets Reckoning

The guy basically forced himself into the building and demanded a tattoo, even when he was told it couldn't be done.

The Weirdest Things Drive-Thru Employees Saw

Cars are a strange semi-private space, and they give people an extra sense of security to be weird. That makes it harder to work a drive-thru job where you spend all day leering into people's cars. Some customers are even looking to freak employees out, which has gotta make work a little rough. For more customer service stuff, here are weird things Walmart employees witnessed and some totally mindless things said by credit card customers.

Tumblr Thread: Customers' Mythically Powerful Coffee Orders

The life of a barista is a weird one. When every customer you have is someone who hasn't had their first coffee of the day, there's no knowing what kind of people can lumber in. Some take on the challenge and become a barista that's the living definition of chaotic good. Others just stand in awe and watch a 46-year-old woman drink 8 Red Bulls worth of caffeine in a single swig.

Tumblr thread on customers crazy coffee orders | say this jokingly but had customer actually order pumpkin spice latte with 9 shots espresso (also no whip) and asked her verify she did indeed want 9 shots espresso she looked dead eyes and said have 5 kids" witchcraft-with-space-bean once had woman come and ordered an Americano with 19 shots espresso drink took ages held up line asked

Customer's Translation Fail Results In Begging Bartender For Nothing

Translation fails inspire all kinds of hilarious confusion between two perfectly rational human beings. In this case, we have a customer unknowingly repeatedly pleading for nothing at all. If you're the bartender on the other side of that mishap, do you let the oblivious stupidity persist, or do you correct the translation fail as soon as possible? Could be a tough call if you end up wanting to have some fun with it.

Demanding Customer Wastes Their Own Time for Four Cents

Sure, if the hill you're willing to die on costs four cents out of the charity bin, go ahead and die on that hill. Customers sometimes make demands with stupid implications, like this customer who wanted a pound of chicken wings and got less wings or this guy who demanded to ride in a go kart with no engine.

Customer Demands Extra Jam, Gets Weaponized Donut

Customers often suffer from the problem of not knowing what they want, and then being extremely stern demanding that thing. For example, this customer who wanted exactly a pound of wings and got less wings, or this customer who demanded to use an engineless go kart. In this case it was a woman who demanded a refilled donut, and it went about as well as you'd expect.
